2015 WGNZ Team NZL1

7 Sep 2015 – Auckland Curling's Sepember newsletter has good news on our ice!

Paradice staff have worked out and resolved the problems, so we have 5 sheets available to us again. So our Auckland Under-21 Championship (entries close this Friday 11th with first games on Sunday) and Auckland Mixed Doubles are back on the schedule.

The newsletter also explains our new Sunday duty teams, and looks at the international debut of NZ's newest Mixed Doubles team.


Winter Games NZ

18 Aug 2015 – Auckland Curling's August newsletter covers the recent discussion with Paradice to try and get some resolution to the ongpong problem of uneven ice on the outer two sheets. Despite the best efforts of Paradice staff they had reached the stage of being virtually unplayable on some nights.

We are cautiously optimistic of some improvement, and will confirm the draw for this Sunday (23rd) after the schools session on Thursday evening.

The newsletter also looks forward to the international events for NZ teams over the next few months, starting next week with the Audi quattro Winter Games NZ.

Come curling in Auckland

19 Jun 2015 – Our June newsletter has the low-down on the our new curling season. Now that we know precisely how many teams we have we can confirm that we will have a two-pool format for the first half of the season.

We can confirm game fees for spares, offer our congratulations to the winners of the NZ Mixed Fours Championship held over Queen's Birthday Weekend, and we can point you towards plenty of online resources for both new AND experienced curlers.


Come curling in Auckland

15 May 2015 – Auckland Curling's season will open with a social mini-bonspiel this Sunday 17th May. This will comprise short 3-end games throughout the evening.

Most teams will be "mix and match" drawn from a hat – but if new curlers have already formed a team and want to play together then that's fine too! Please bring nibbles to share. Not everyone will be playing at once so there will be plenty of time to socialise.

And if you want to play this season – every week, most weeks or occasionally – then now is the time to sign up and let us know.


Read the full feasibility study

15 Mar 2015 – Auckland Curling needs your help to make a submission to Council's 10 Year Plan for a curling rink in our city to become a reality. We need a place to build.

Submissions close at 4pm this Monday 16 March. Read more below to see how to make a submission.

A feasibility study into a combined ice and indoor sports complex on Auckland's North Shore has just been completed. This report was largely funded by an Auckland Council grant to Auckland Curling, acting on behalf of the Harbour Ice and Indoor Sports Stadium group.

The report identifies a way for Auckland Curling to establish a dedicated curling rink in the city with minimum capital outlay, working in conjunction with Council and WCF.

13 Oct 2014 – The Cleansweep side of Chelsea Farley, Thivya Jeyaranjan, Tessa Farley, Ryan Lewis and Eleanor Adviento were rewarded for their consistency when they won the 2014 Auckland Premier League. They beat Liz Matthews' Thistles 7-4 in Sunday's Grand Final.

The result was earned after three top-four finishes for the side in the last 4 years, including topping the preliminary round last year and a runner-up finish in 2010.

It was the best possible end to the domestic season for the Farley sisters, Jeyaranjan and Adviento before they and Waverley Taylor represent their country at next month's Pacific-Asia Curling Championships.

4 Oct 2014 – The Stonehenge side of Garion Long, Ben Frew and Matt Hohaia backed up their 2013 Auckland Under-21 victory when they won the 2014 final against Team Adviento last weekend.

Both sides had beaten Team Sugimara in the round robin to set up the decider. They came into the final on 28 September straight after a club game in the early session at Paradice Avondale.

Team Adviento started the better of the two sides with singles in the first two ends, but a 4 to Stonehenge in the next saw them take a lead that they did not relinquish. The teams shook hands with the scoreline at 7-2.

27 Sep 2014 – Glenys and Peter Taylor won their second Auckland Mixed Doubles Championship with a 6-1 win over the young brother / sister team of Matt and Victoria Hohaia in the 2014 final.

They Taylors scored singles in the first three ends before their opponents got one back in the fourth. But it was all over in next, a 3-pointer being to much too come back from in a 6 end match. The Taylors first won the title in 2008.

Twelve teams started the championship on 7th September. Auckland's shortage of available ice time forced an abbreviated preliminary round, with all teams playing three 4-end games in the one evening.
